1. The natural length of a spring is 10 cm. A force of 25 N stretches it to a length of 20cm. How much work, in units of N-cm, is done in stretching it from a length of 10cm to a length of 15cm? Hooke's law for a spring is given by f=kx, where f is the force, x is the distance the spring is stretched, and k is a constant.
2. Find the slope of the tangent to the curve of y-in (25x+3) at x=2
Please see the solution to your problem in the attached word file ...
Calculating Work and Slope of a Tangent are investigated.
